, absolutely -- h.r. 4607 is absolutely long overdue. president george w. bush rushed excess amounts to close before he left. president obama will undoubtedly do the same. that's wrong. it's simply wrong. and we know it is and we know that often, as this bill says, these are regulations that aren't heard before the election and are concluded in those 75 days before departure. it's wrong, we know we need to stop it, we shouldn't abrogate our responsibility and the members on the other side will suddenly decide, i'm sure, this is a better idea should mitt romney be elected in the fall. this bill is supported by the chamber of commerce, association of builder andy contract -- builders and contractors, small business and entrepreneurs council, and the national federation of independent businesses. the fact is, this is about simply saying, not that we're going to stop 3,000 regulations, but that we're going to slow and evaluate more carefully the 66 largest of them by this administration last year. during debate the administration was essentially lauded for having passed less regulations in

clinton handed president george w. bush a record surplus. so the only time in the last 30 years in which we actually had the budget in balance was after we raised taxes on those at the top, the very level we're talking about now. between 1993 and 2001, this country created an unprecedented number of jobs -- 22.7 million net -- and did so while benefiting everyone up and down the economic ladder. not every individual but every quartile. there was economic growth in every quartile. we witnessed a decrease in the number of americans in poverty and we saw the creations of more millionaires and billionaires than ever before. president clinton's deficit-reduction plan not only reduced the deficit as planned, it eliminated it entirely. so not only did we create all that prosperity, president clinton then handed off a record surplus. i think it needs to be said. he handed off a record surplus to incoming president george w. bush. in fact, when president bush took office, we were on track to completely pay off our national debt with $5 trillion of surpluses projected over the next ten years

is not a new story. in 2001, when president george w. bush decided to spend a large portion of the surpluses he inherited from president clinton to cut tax rates across the board, many democrats opposed it because the tax cuts were unfairly waited towards the highest-income americans. as a result of this opposition, republicans were forced to set the tax cuts to expire at the end of 2010. as 2010 drew to a close, president obama and many democrats in congress, including myself, supported extending the tax cuts for middle-class families but letting the lower rates on income above $200,000 for an individual and $250,000 for a family revert to the clinton-era levels, as was scheduled. senate republicans filibustered that effort, refusing to allow the middle class tax cut without a tax cut for america's wealthiest. not wanting tax rates to go up on middle-class families still struggling during the economy. the president and senate democrats reluctantly agreed to extend all of the tax cuts through this year. which brings us to now. once again these tax rates are set to expire. i would l

of george w. bush. remember when george w. bush became president, we had surpluses as far as the eye could see. then he gave these tax breaks to the top 1%. and, by the way, this $160,000, that's the millionaire tax break. they want to give tax breaks to the multimillionaires, to the billionaires, to the multibillionaires. they put no cap on the tax cut whatsoever. you can earn $100 billion, they want to give you a tax break. and there's a cost. there's a cost to the treasury. there's a cost to the debt. there's a cost to the deficit. there's a cost to fairness. there is a cost to the middle class. so i think the american people have weighed in on this one, and they believe that to give a tax break to the first $250,000 of everybody's income is fair, because then the people above that can pay a little more, the same rates they paid when bill clinton was president, and we need to go back to those days when we created 23 million jobs and when we not only balanced the budget, but we created surpluses as far as the eye can see. the question is, madam president, who are you fighting f
